bootcd: log files and cron jobs


I want to create a bootcd (via debians bootcd package) with my current
Debian system and I wonder if anyone has created a list of logfiles which
could grow very large. The problem is that /var is a ramdisk on the bootcd
and has only 8MB. If the cd is running 24/7 the logfiles can "waste" a lot
of space. So this needs finetuning /etc/logrotate.d and /etc/cron.*

There are cron jobs which run frequently and recreate stuff which is
very time consuming and needs a lot of disktime due the cdrom. I wonder
if they could be turned off -> cdrom is static.

so long
